We have considerable experience, both as a company and as individuals in the construction of a wide variety of concrete foundations. Recent projects we have delivered include concrete pad foundations, and, working with our JV partners, both concrete and timber piles.

Auckland Airport Enabling Works

Traction Room entered a joint venture with Gameon2 Contractors to perform large scale earthworks, concrete work and services installation for CPB Contractors as part of the Auckland Airport extensions. Traction Room managed the contract.

Critical to the Airport extension works was the delivery of a purpose built concrete batching plant. We often had to mobilise large crews at short notice to deliver significant portions of work to meet every changing and challenging timeframes dictated by the client. Since achieving our milestones was critical path to delivery of the wider project we had to run to a very tight program.

Traction Room completed all steel fixing, formwork, and concrete works for circa 300m3 of concrete. The scope of work included foundations, wash out pits, a shotcrete settlement tank, concrete staircases etc. The earthworks included over 100,000m2 of excavation, including installation of services for the entire site including electrical ducts, comms and potable water, and pressure testing of water mains.

Traction Room completed all contract management for the joint venture.
